Lennon tweeted, however, that he will make sure that Speedo Mick, whose real name is Michael Cullen, gets another shirt at a future Everton match.
The sight of Cullen, in his blue speedos, has become a famous one in the Everton end at Premier League grounds up and down the country this season as he bids to raise money for Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust in Liverpool.
He set off last week on a five-day, 100-mile walk to Bournemouth for the Blues' FA Cup Fifth Round tie against the Cherries in aid of Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire Children’s Hospices, and arrived at his destination on Friday evening.
This latest endeavour coincided with him reaching and passing the goal he had set on his JustGiving page where he has raised more than £20,750.
It's not too late, of course, to help Mick in his fundraising efforts and you can make your donation at justgiving.com/speedomick/

It would be great to see either players, owners, or club itself double Mick's eventual total raised money.

Good on him too for his response to losing the shirt. Would have been easy the criticise the lad but he believed the best - that it was an honest mistake.
